Diller chil-ler Thriller here tonight

(Spoken):

Darkness falls across the land the midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood to terrorise y'awl's neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the Hounds of Hell and rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air the funk of forty thousand years
And grizzy ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist the evil of The Thriller

About this song

Thriller is an early 1984 hit single recorded by Michael Jackson for the Epic label. It reached #4 in the U.S. singles chart and #10 in the UK singles chart. The 14-minute video is regarded by many as the greatest music video of all time, and the song itself is considered to be one of Jackson's signature songs. Written by Rod Temperton, produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring a guest soliloquy from Vincent Price, "Thriller" is one of Jackson's signature songs, in no small part because of its music video.
